DECEMBER 2022

 Mars moves in retrograde motion all month. He travels from 18 to 9 degrees of Gemini. He is in Mercury’s sign which explains why it feels like a supercharged Mercury retrograde. Have you misplaced objects? Had trouble with the Internet and your computer? Had weird car accidents? Mars is filling your mind with too many options and distracting you, making it hard to concentrate. Make sure you check the return policies when you shop and make reservations that have reasonable cancellation policies.  Where Gemini sits in your chart is where you need to focus your energy.

Be aware that Mercury goes into retrograde motion on December 29.

Jupiter has his last days in his favorite sign Pisces. If you have planets in Pisces, take advantage of what he brings you. He enters Aries on December 23 to start a new trip around the zodiac.
